hits no apologies to make for the
part it lias taken in the canvass If
confronted with victory it will re

usual poise and eater more valiantly
than ever to the army of readers that
It greets each week; for, after all,
politics and elections and their at

program of life ami when llicsi up

work to do and obligations to meet.
After till is said, it is the voter
who is supreme in (Ids matter, and

Does it look as though Rieehers

Republican voters who desire to
vote the straight ticket this year by
placing their *‘X" in the party circle
near tin* top of the ballot arc warned
that the democratic circle eotnes first
at the top this year instead of the
republican circle as lias been the
case for several years past, and that
the republican parly circle appears
second from the top of the ballot.
The law so provides owing to the
fact that the deinoi rats east the
largest vote last year for the head of
the ticket (Shnlletiberger). All re
publicans hope to replace the re
publican circle at the head of the
ballot by winning this year and re
placing the party circle at tile head
of the ticket for the important elec
tion of next year when a complete list
of state officers, a United States sen
ator and a legislature is to lie chosen.

The Tribune wants to go on record regarding the third
term proposition. So long as The Tribune shall be publish
ed under the present management it will not only refuse to
support a candidate who asks for three or more successive
terms at public office, but it will do its utmost to defeat him
—regardless of party politics.
democrats believe they will serve
their party better by putting it
through a Course of purification,
thereby doing a doubly duty; the in

those republicans who voted
against Judge Wilhite four years ago
on account of the third term issue,
which they declared they could nev
er and would never endorse, can
now apply (heir objections to Judge
Gagnon. He is not only a fifth term
er, but didn’t want the office. lie
didn't even tile until after James
was allowed to file and was given
to understand that Gagnon would
"stay off." Hut the bosses and
their machine were afraid of James,
so they forced Gagnon on the ticket.
Nebraska is a republican stale. It
has a goodly majority of republican
voters, of men who stand by and
support republican policies and prin
ciples which have been the founda
tion of national and individual wt tilth
and prosperity. To keep what we
have gained in prosperity it is vitally
necessary to keep republican princi
ples and policies in the ascendancy
In state and nation. This can be
done in Nebraska only by getting the
republican vote in the ballot box on
election day. Nov. 2nd next. This is
the only place where votes win. No
body wants a repetition of d. mo, vat
ic success in Nebraska as repre
sented by the late lamented democrat
ic legislature. Nebraska is republi
can. Let us keep it so by polling the
full party vote In the ballot box. That
is the only place where it counts.

Riechers—to be long $621.62 in the
cash balance, rather than show a

with certain predecessors.
In a recent issue of the Falls City
News they tried to show by compari
son that Hutchings was more compe
tent than Riechers, for the office of
county treasurer, because the state
board raised the county assessors' val
uation five per cent. They say that
Hutchings saved the county $8,000,
*hen, in fact, Hutchings had nothing
to do with it. It’s absurd!
They said that Riechers cost the
